What You Need to Know about VelaSmooth™

istock_000004551926xsmall-300x176Millions of women, as well as some men, experience the issue of cellulite (dimpled, bumpy skin). While many people associate the appearance of cellulite with being overweight or unhealthy, the truth is that people of any size, weight, or fitness level, can have cellulite.

Cellulite usually appears on the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, or hips. It commonly appears in areas of fat deposits, and is caused by uneven, fatty tissue below the skin’s surface. While not a serious condition, it can be very embarrassing, especially during the summer months.

Many people rely on over-the-counter treatments, such as cremes, to combat the appearance of cellulite. However, many of the cellulite-reducing products don’t live up to their promises.  VelaSmooth™, however, delivers visible results for patients who wish to eliminate the look of cellulite.

A breakthrough procedure, VelaSmooth uses an aesthetic medical device to improve the patient’s body. The procedure is frequently performed before or after liposuction surgery. The procedure is painless and non-invasive, combining elements of laser, radiofrequency, and massage technology to break up target areas of fat, while safely re-shaping the patient’s skin. Best of all, the procedure has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)!

VelaSmooth is safe to be performed on patients on various skin tones and textures. Good candidates for this procedure are otherwise healthy individuals, who simply want to correct areas of cellulite which they feel are hindering their appearance. Among the procedure’s many benefits are improved body image, decreased muscles aches and pains, and overall higher self-esteem.The procedure is also fairly quick, taking only about 30 minutes to complete! Patients often choose to make several return visits so that they can maintain their results even further.

While VelaSmooth does not offer patients permanent results, patients are often able to maintain their post-treatment results in several ways. This can be done simply by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy weight.
